I stopped taking amlodpine due to swelling, tiredness, depression and knee pain just to name a few. I need a med that does not cause weight gain, depression tiredness or swelling.
fwO623; Really you are not but you have to be willing to put up with trial and error medications don't work the same on all of us because we are all different Just talk to your doctor and let the doctor know you are looking for a weight-neutral medication which means you should not gain weight and one that does not make you feel like a zombie. BUT remember this almost all of these medications for the first week or two hit you harder and you may get side effects but after the 2 weeks these go away and the longer you're on the medication the better you should feel. It all starts at the doctor's office. Best of luck Chuck1957
